How do you stop monsters from arriving in the mail? Rilla Harmony Earth is already an easy target because of her name and her mom's unconventional philosophies. Now a seven-year-old Botswanan monster named Icicle has appeared in her mailbox, and someone has signed her up to receive a new monster on the first of every month! Rilla wonders who is behind her gift membership to this strange club. Could it be Joshua Bates, her one true love, or even her father, whose whereabouts are unknown? Whatever their source, Rilla is busy taking care of her growing collection of exotic monsters. And slowly, but surely, the monsters are growing on her. With her gallery of endearing supernatural characters, award-winning author Dian Curtis Regan has sparked the imagination of young readers everywhere. Christina Moore's dramatic reading of this monstrous tale brings out its full humor and excitement.

"Rilla Harmony Earth has been gifted with the oddest permutation of month clubs--the Monster of the Month Club! With her brisk, no-nonsense delivery, Christina Moore moves the story along at a swift clip. With the subtlest shift in voice from narrator to Rilla, Moore manages to capture the thirteen-year-old's bewilderment, consternation, and excitement as Icicle and Sweetie Pie, the January and February "selections," arrive at Harmony House Bed and Breakfast. From the flattened notes of Mr. T's Aussie accent to the drawl of Aunt Poppy's nasal whine, the cast of characters comes alive under Moore's able narration. T.B. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
